Hot Yoga actually creates an atmosphere that is ideal for the novel coronavirus to spread. Although Harvard and other health organisations have stated that there are benefits of yoga for coronavirus, practicing hot yoga in a group setting is certainly not the answer.

When we are happy or excited, time seems to pass quickly. And so, our experience of time is inherently linked to our emotions in the present moment. Mindfulness meditation, or Vipassana (a Theravada Buddhist tradition) creates control of emotion, and thereby changes the way we perceive time.…
